Luxury Roundup

Nothing screams luxury quite like ski lodging, and across Northern Utah, we’ve got 5-Star hospitality in abundance. From household brand names that represent the best in travel like St.Regis and Waldorf Astoria to one of a kind mountainside and canyon lodges, each property reflects its own personality as well the resort that they call home. These unbeatable locations will have you feeling like the you're the king or queen of the world!

Sundance Mountain Resort– Tucked away off Provo Canyon, on the scenic alpine loop, sits a careful balance of art, nature and community. The properties at Sundance Mountain Resort are unlike any other location on the list – not only are the beautiful striations of Mount Timpanogos (the Wasatch Range’s second largest peak) a looming and beautiful presence in the background, but each room, suite, or private room feels like its own little world. Don’t miss the historic Owl Bar during your stay at Sundance; a restored bar from the 1890s moved from Wyoming to bring you creative cocktails in an intimate and warm space.

The Lodge at Blue SkyWith a tagline like “Luxury with Wild Abandon,” Blue Sky Ranch screams rustic mountain luxury. Living up to its tagline and sitting on 3,500 private acres, this true escape offers ample accommodation options - think, adult only cabins at the Creek Houses, central Sky Lodge Signature Suites, and Earth Suites boasting their own private balcony. Expert guides, wranglers, instructors, and artists round-out a calendar of daily activities. What makes this a special ski property? Eight resorts within 35 minutes of the property, a menu of heli-ski options and a private Blue Sky lounge at the base of the Silver Queen lift at Park City Mountain.

The St. Regis Deer Valley- What says mountain chic more than your choice of ski-in/ski-out or funicular lift from the parking lot? Extra perks for the St. Regis Deer Valley? 1. Marriott Bonvoy members rejoice – if you’re a points hustler take this luxurious opportunity to rack them up. 2. With each St. Regis location having its own take on the Bloody Mary (or Red Snapper), the Deer Valley location's unique and locally inspired version The 7452 Mary, named after the properties elevation, is rimmed with a sweet and savory black lava salt and topped with a flavorful wasabi and celery espuma and can’t be missed.

Waldorf Astoria Park City
- Slopeside at the largest ski resort in North America (Park City Mountain) and one of the most trusted brands in luxury hospitality is a combo unlike any other. You know the Waldorf name as the historic hotel brand started on 5th Avenue in New York City – a legendary property that was the birthplace of the red velvet cake and Waldorf salad (ya know, that weird one with mayo, apples, grapes and walnuts?), a favorite of Elizabeth Taylor, and hundreds of pop-culture references. Here in Utah, the Waldorf Astoria offers a new take on modern mountain luxury with 7,300 acres of mountain paradise to explore.

The Snowpine Lodge - Unlike some of the other names on this list with established brand names and international footprints, the The Snowpine Lodge is truly one of a kind and chocked full of history. Located at Alta Ski Area with Snowbird next door, this is a skier's dream hotel. As an original mining property turned general store, turned post office, the original stone structure can be found integrated into walls throughout the building. A complete rebuild in 2019 upgraded the Snowpine’s status with a restaurant, pub, spa, and game room. Complete with its own lift to give you a bump after a long day of skiing at Alta Ski Area. 

Make sure to check out Utah’s other luxury ski properties like the Pendry at the Canyons Village at Park City Mountain and the Stein Eriksen Lodge, Residences, Montage or Goldener Hirsch at Deer Valley. Whether you are looking for luxurious lodging complete with ski-in/ski-out and the best names in 5-star service or looking for a tucked away mountain retreat.
